Flowers are a great gift for Valentine’s Day, whether it’s for your significant other or the person you’ve been seeing. They’re also a great way to say I love you if you don’t have time to craft something sweet, and they can express sympathy with their beautiful colors: white for purity, red for passion and romance, yellow for friendship and hope. There are so many different kinds of flowers out there! They’re pretty much guaranteed to bring joy into someone’s life every day of the year.

Of course, we can’t forget their practical uses—flowers make lovely decorations at weddings or any other party (especially when fresh). And did we mention that they smell amazing?

History of Valentine’s Day

So why do we even have a Valentine’s Day, you may have wondered? Well history tells us it is a Christian feast day celebrating love. It is celebrated on February 14 and named after Saint Valentine, a third-century Roman martyr.

The day is also known as “Feast of Saint Valentine”. The Feast of Saint Valentine was first recorded in the year 496 AD by Galesus, bishop of Terni, who noted it as being celebrated on December 20 to commemorate Pope Galesius’ conversion to Christianity. In 998 AD, Lupercalia (a pagan festival) was outlawed by Pope Gregory V and later replaced with Lent, which had been adopted from the Eastern Church tradition.

The Roman Catholic Church declared February 14th an official feast day in honor of the efforts by Pope Gelasius I to end an epidemic which killed five thousand people in Rome during his papacy between 492–496 AD; he was canonized as Saint Gelasius I in 496 AD at which time he became known as “St. Valentine” or “Valentinus”—the Latin form of his name (Valentinus).


In summary, this Valentine’s Day will not be like any other. Our flowers are extra fresh, romantic and fragrant! We have made sure that there is something for everyone with our Valentine’s Day menu. So don’t waste any time and order some flowers today!
